    2.0tdi BKD I've (or my wife) averaged 47mpg over period of 3years. This is calculated figure based on tank to tank fill ups

    Average over the tank is 45, mainly motorway with a smattering of As and Bs.

    Cruising to work I can average around 53mpg which includes A's and a bit of dual carriageway, I have even hit over 60mpg if I really try! Generally with mixed driving I sit between 47-50mpg. I drive a mapped 2006 BKD.

    mpg in the 40's range, depending on how its driven (urban+motorway mix). usually get 420-460 miles to a tank - 2.0 tdi bkd. high octane fuel seems to give far less miles...

    Mixed mode, around 55, drive to work 30 miles mostly A roads dual carriageway at a sedate 60mph, around 65mpg, DIS has shown 75+ on occasions. Its how you drive essentially, drive defensively, look ahead, plan the route, and reap the benefits, sports car for the weekend Sir.
    Forgot to add, 140BHP, 2011 model, now on 55k miles. BE model.

    2.0 BKD, 100% town, short distances (~5miles back and forth), never less than 40MPG but I don't mind how I drive (often quite fast accelerations etc.). If drive gently, 51MPG is possible, but then I slow down the city traffic :) So I prefer filling a tank a little bit often but drive how I want.

    Standard 140. Motorway 80mph+ has returned 54mpg for the last 12 months.

    Around town this drops to 46-48mpg.

    2.0TDI 140 2008 A3 Sportback DSG. I drive it flat out constantly (you think im joking): 38mpg average. Can get 50mpg on long motorway run if i really try. I dont think its really that economical, but if i cared id probably drive much nicer.

    Standard 170tdi cr. Last tank 50.3 mpg (calculated properly not on MFD) Usually overall between 50-55mpg. On runs around 60mpg, around town down to 45mpg.

    Most frugal car I've ever driven tbh, obviously stop start helps a lot in traffic

    Lifetime MPG on the car display is 54mpg so seems quite accurate tbf

    Tdi-Tuning box on a 140tdi cr full tank can get me at least 600 miles (lots of motorway drive cruising at 70mph~70%). last tank 54.0mpg (Calculated properly) DIS normally shows 65mpg once warmed up.

    My a3 2.0 tdi bkd was fantastic on fuel. Never saw below 45mpg and I do town driving. It was over 50mpg most of the time. Much better than my current 3.0 tdi lol

    I do 10000 miles every quarter year, I watch my mpg closely on my quattro 170 tdi, I get average 43 @ 78mph. With shell Vpower I get 45 however strangely the tank goes down quicker, might like the additives.

    2.0TDI BKD with a darkside developments hybrid turbo and remap 134,000 on the clock. Averaged 47.3mpg over the last 6500 miles, currently done 910 miles on 1 tank and 3/4. 70mph I average 58mpg, 80mph 51mpg and 90mph 46mpg (those speeds are down here in france and italy). The boost kicks in from 2100 rpm so no chance of getting better figures.
